#1 A New Year

Just for fun 🙂 This is a personal blog where I hope to write about various things that interest me throughout the year. I have no specific content plans, I just want to see what unfolds as the days go by. Carnet, is French for notebook. 365 is the number of days in the year…

#259 Treehouse

Treehouses belonged to the same magical realm as magic carpets and flying beds for me as a child. I read a lot of Enid Blyton, in fact I think I read all of her books. I remember reading Mr Twiddle and drinking oxtail flavoured Cup-a-Soup in front of the heater after school, while my sister…

#258 Sweet Sunday

Loving this day! I’m with the people I love and I’m doing all the things 🙂 We baked some Scottish Shortbread some in the usual rounds and others in stars and dinosaurs. We found out about breeding Super Worms to feed one of the kids Hermit Crabs and think it might be fun. It’s just…

#257 Jokes & Bread

One of my kids is very witty and is a master of puns. He comes up with jokes on the spot and they are always funny. He likes to be busy doing things most of the time and out of all of the kids, he enjoys going out the most. If he comes and tells…

#256 New start

The great thing about beginning to read a book, whatever it’s format, is that it’s a fresh start. A new story to discover, page by page, chapter by chapter. It’s full of unlimited potential. That’s is also the case with a new day. A new day is a fresh start and also full of unlimited…

#255 Time Out

Now that I have my health sorted out to a degree, I feel like like I need to do some planning. Tomorrow morning I’m going to take some time to add important dates into my planner, as I k know there are few things I haven’t put in. I’m going to do some meal planning…

#254 Some things are difficult

That’s a very true statement for today. Every now and again, I feel stuck in regards to a situation. I don’t know how to move forward or how to make a situation better. It’s not that I’m not trying. Not being able to make something better for another person is hard. Not being able to…

#253 Spring has Sprung

Yes Spring is here! The sun is shining and the chill in the air seems to have left until Autumn at least. Mama has just left, always hard but I know we’ll see each other again soon. I’m so grateful to her for being here to support me through everything. Love my mum so much…

#252 Missing

That’s me currently, missing in action. We went to the shops as some of the kids had shopping to do 🙂 There is other stuff going on and Mama is still here. For your viewing pleasure is a picture I took of a dandelion. To me, they are like daffodils and sunflowers, with their yellow…

#251 Antidote

For today I need an antidote to stress. My answer, be like a cat. They seem to have it all figured out. xo

#250 Dumplings

It’s been a happy Sunday 🙂 I ate dumplings, had a massage and my car got a clean. Time for bed. xo
